Hogwarts Uniform

The Hogwarts uniform is a clothing that students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry required to wear. The uniform should be worn daily for each lesson, and kept while in the Great Hall, Study Hall, Common Room or Library. Students can wear casual when they have a day, or all day, for free. The Hogwarts uniform is washed in a laundry, located elsewhere in Hogwarts Castle and possibly operated by house-elves.

Dressing in Hogwarts Uniform

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a school for 11 to 17 or 18-year-olds living in Great Britain. Students went to Hogwarts to study and practice magic, and to hone their skills.

The school has a formal uniform that all students are required to wear, as well as optional clothing items, and accessories such as Prefect and Head Boy or Girl pins. The school divides the children into four separate houses (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff) according to the ability of each student.

Dressing in Hogwarts uniform is easy enough if you know what to wear. From House clothes, jerseys, and shirts to a scarf, hat and accessories of choice

:small_blue_diamond: House Robes

The robe you choose to wear will show which of these four Houses you belong to. All the clothes are black, with a hood, and a patch of that House building. Gryffindor coats are brightly colored burgundy, Ravenclaw coats in blue, Slytherin blue coats, and Hufflepuff coats in gold or yellow.

There are many officially licensed robes produced in bulk. These robes range from basic to deluxe, and vary in price.

:small_blue_diamond: Cosplay Robe

Cosplay robes are known to last a long time because they are made of strong materials. They can be officially approved, or they can be customized directly to the consumer. The Cosplay robe is usually more expensive and more detailed than the mass-produced robes.

:small_blue_diamond: Grey Sweater

Sweaters are part of Hogwarts official uniform. Like robes, there are four different sweaters, one for each House. Each sweater is a dark gray and has brightly colored stripes of one of these Four Houses. Do not say which house the student is in based on the color of the stripes.

:small_blue_diamond: White Shirt (For Women)

Under the sweater is a white shirt. The shirt is plain, and the buttons up. I don’t think we’ve ever seen a student wearing a shirt without a jersey so I’m not sure, but I suspect the student’s shirt has long sleeves, like sweaters. However, it is up to you if you want your shirt to have long or short sleeves.

:small_blue_diamond: Grey Skirt (For Women)

Hogwarts girls wear a dark gray skirt. It’s not possible to find exactly the same as the skirts but there are a lot of black skirts to choose from in what looks very similar to a skirt from the movies. Make sure your skirt is not too long and not too short. Just above the knee will work well if you want to be honest with the uniforms seen in the movies.

:small_blue_diamond: Grey Tights (For Women)

It is not sure if the tights were part of the Hogwarts uniform but they go well with other outfits that girls should wear. Tights come in large quantities so choose the one that suits your weather. That is, if you live in a cold, snowy place, go with thick tights.

:small_blue_diamond: White Shirt (For Men)

Just like girls, boys wear white shirts under their jerseys. And, just like girls, they had long sleeves. However, you can certainly wear short sleeves if you like. Just make sure the shirt is clear and there are buttons.

:small_blue_diamond: Cufflinks

You can add a classy touch, or humor, to your outfit with one of the many Harry Potter scenes available. Most are critical, like those of each of the four Houses, but some are stupid, like those made with Harry Potter LEGO® characters. Some even come up with similar pieces of tie.

:small_blue_diamond: Grey Pants (For Men)

The girls wore skirts but the boys wore pants, specific gray color. I love the look of the Docker style pants because they are both casual and dressy at the same time, and they go well with the overall look of a Hogwarts outfit.

:small_blue_diamond: School Hat

There is a hat for Hogwarts students. It is black, pointed, and has an ‘H’ mark for Hogwarts on it. Students require to wear this hat, but they should not have worn it all the time since the students in the movies didn’t always wear it.

:small_blue_diamond: Beanie

There are four beanie-style hats, each with the colors of four school houses. Hogwarts was found elsewhere in Scotland, and winters are cold, windy and snowy. Companies are a great way to help keep Hogwarts students warm while traveling outdoors.

:small_blue_diamond: Hair Accessory

Don’t want to wear a hat? Then check out the many House Hair accessories available. There’s an officially licensed headband, and more with custom-made clips, barrettes, and ponytail holders. The things may be slightly different, but one thing they have in common is that they use the colors of each House.

:small_blue_diamond: Tie

As you already know from the movies, there are bonds for each Hogwarts House. These ties match the colors of each House, and most of them have the hats of the House in them. Both boys and girls wore ties, so this is appropriate for all students.

:small_blue_diamond: Scarf

Scarves are ideal for keeping you warm on cold days and nights. This is a great accessory that you can add if you live in a cold place.

There are several styles to choose from, each with a different color hue. If you want both a scarf and a beanie it might be best to look at both sets to make sure the colors are the same, instead of clash.

:small_blue_diamond: Socks

There are many types of House socks, including high and knee socks. Some socks are officially licensed, while many others are lovingly designed by fans.

:small_blue_diamond: Shoes

Complete your House uniform with shoes. There are only officially licensed shoes for Gryffindor and Slytherin, but there are also custom-made shoes for all four houses.

Optional Accessories for Hogwarts Uniform

Following are mentioned the optional accessories for Hogwarts uniform.

:small_blue_diamond: House Pins

Add a pin to your uniform for fun. There are at least some official pins, but there are plenty of fan-made pins available.

:small_blue_diamond: Prefect Pin

Every year Hogwarts Principal nominates one boy and one girl from these four School Houses from the fifth, sixth and seventh years to become Prefects. Prefects are students who have been given extra responsibilities and authority over students.

:small_blue_diamond: Head Boy or Girl Pin

The principal selects one boy from each of the seventh-year students to be the Head Boy and the head Girl. These two students may be Prefects, but that is not a requirement. Head students are above the chain of authority and responsibility, even beyond the Prefects.

:small_blue_diamond: Tie Clip

There are many different tie clips, also called tie bars, that you can use to keep your House tie in place. Projects include Hogwarts school crest, Platform 9 3/4, and the Deathly Hallows brand.

:small_blue_diamond: Hogwarts Student ID Badge

There is a seller who made badge IDs for Hogwarts students. Each badge includes the student’s details, such as House, name, gender, witchcraft blood status, and type of wand.

There are already badges made for most of the main characters with pictures of the characters showing each character. Or, you can customize the badge with your photo and any name you want.

:small_blue_diamond: Weasley Is Our King Button

Draco Malfoy has written a song about Ron Weasley’s poor skills of Quidditch to increase Ron’s lack of confidence and help Gryffindor’s team lose. Draco’s plan started to work, but Ron was able to overcome his doubts and win. The 'Weasley is Our king button’ is the perfect way to show your support for Gryffindor Quidditch player, Ron Weasley, or make fun of him if you’re Slytherin.

:small_blue_diamond: Support Cedric Diggory Button

Cedric Diggory was nominated by the Goblet of Fire to represent the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the Triwizard Tournament at Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Harry Potter’s name was also chosen by Goblet after someone made a surprise entry into the competition. This did not sit well with almost any student because Harry was too young to compete.

One Hogwarts student created a badge that alternates between “Support Cedric Diggory” and “Potter Stinks”. (It has never been revealed which student made this button but my money knuts and scissors from Draco Malfoy) there is no recommendation for anyone wearing a Gryffindor costume to wear the “Potter Stinks” button, but feel free to wear your support Cedric.

:small_blue_diamond: Potter Stinks Button

The Slytherins did their best to reduce and ridicule Harry Potter during the Triwizard Tournament by wearing the “Potter Stinks” buttons.

:small_blue_diamond: School Textbooks

Hogwarts students can take a variety of magic classes. There are several vendors at Etsy who have created their own types of books used by Hogwarts students. Most are empty magazines with book covers but at least one has two pages of text inside each magazine. You can keep a book or two hidden inside your pocket in case you feel you are making progress in your studies!

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry requires specific uniforms for its students. In Hogwarts uniform, robes work more like t-shirts, in that students pull them on over the head, probably hiding any sort of clothes or uniforms that exist underneath. All student robes are black. Students are expected to own at least three each. All robes are purchased for first-year students before they are sorted into their respective houses.

There uniform includes a tie in house color, a white shirt, navy skirt or slacks, and a gray sweater or sweater vest, also with house colors on the edges. This is in the films only. The uniforms are not quite so “uniform” from page to screen.
